Laser lipoma and atheroma removal

The institute of plastic surgery VIRTUS currently offers up-to-date method of removal subcutaneous growths – laser lipoma and atheroma removal.

Some reasons of lipoma and atheroma formation:

  • obstruction of sebaceous glands;
  • imbalance of organism metabolism;
  • acne;
  • hormonal disbalance;
  • hyperthyroidism;
  • traumas (including psychological ones);
  • seborrhoea;
  • inherited predisposition (for example, family (generalized) lipomatosis).

Lipoma and atheroma, problem description

Lipoma (so called «fatty tumor») – flexible benign tumor of subcutaneous fat tissue. At its early stage lipoma causes purely esthetic discomfort. But in the course of time it tends to increase in size.

What are the possible consequences of the delayed lipoma treatment:

  • Growing lipoma may provoke pressure on the adjacent tissues and nerve endings, therefore it can cause painful sensations over the course of time;
  • Long-term lipomas are often get extended and the body of the new growth hangs down (crural lipoma), causing not just esthetic discomfort but the risk of tissue necrosis as a result of blood congestion.

On the contrary to lipoma, atheroma represents subcutaneous cyst, which is also the result of the congestion of excretory sebaceous gland ducts. Externally atheroma has a round shape with clear-cut boundaries and the size range within 5-40 mm (sometimes larger). It is lymphatic and (at the beginning) painless. Most widespread localizations of atheroma are head, face, neck, back and genitals.

What is the cost of the delayed atheroma treatment:

  • with time the cyst may burst and turn into ulcer;
  • even small size cyst may induce infection;
  • there is a high chance of inflammatory process such as erythema, itching, purulence;
  • in state of neglect the inflammation may rupture outside into the subcutaneous tissue.

Besides the above problems, any treatment delay many only complicate the existing problems and prolong the recovery period also increasing the chance of scarring!

Nowadays lipomas and atheromas are treated by means of laser surgery in order to remove subcutaneous new growths.

Impeccable qualification of clinic «Virtus» surgeons (best of the best in Ukraine), department of laser technologies equipped with the cutting edge devices made in Italy or Germany, will help you to forget about the above mentioned problems within a very short time.

Prior to the procedure, all patients required to go through the following medical examinations – ultrasound scanning, Cito-tests for Hepatitis, RW, HIV, sugar, anesthetic tolerance test etc.
